  • what is a guardian?

    A guardian family means that you get to be part of our breeding program here at Lakehouse. Our guardian families are vital to our program and we enjoy working with families to provide wonderful breeding dogs. When you become a guardian for one of our dogs they are part of your forever home. Lakehouse will retain breeding rights for their breeding career. This means you will be a part of the breeding process with us. 

send us your application

We are currently taking applications for a few of our select labradoodle puppies to join our breeding program with guardian homes. Please contact us if you are interested in joining our Guardian Home program and live within a 1 hour drive of Georgetown, Texas.

cost to become a guardian

The initial cost for our Guardian program is $500. Guardian Home Families are responsible for the general routine veterinary care and wellness of the Guardian puppy/dog placed with them. 

 

What This means:

1. Annual Vaccines

2. Regular Veterinary Care

3. Feeding a high quality dog food

4. Consistent Grooming

5. Monthly Heartworm Prevention

6. Flea and Tick Prevention

7. Regular Exercise

8. Socialization

9. Dog Training

10. As much Love and attention as possible

Please Note: Any “breeding related” medical costs for the Guardian Dog are at the expense of Lake House Doodles. Our Guardian Homes are only responsible for routine maintenance and medical care just as they would if they had their own dog.
